5 out of 5 eggssimply amazing

Pros: I have owned one for nearly a year and loved it so much I ended up buying 2 more last month. triple monitor setup with these are beautiful, amazing colors and strong brights/darks.

These monitors seriously pack a punch for the price.

Includes all cables needed (dvi, hdmi, and vga) so you only may need an active adapter if your gpu's can't handle the set up with wires provided.

Cons: startup time is a pain, but you could always leave it on and it'll switch into a sleep mode that takes a fraction of the time to start up (and unless you're unplugging it from your outlet, it shouldn't impact your bill to much if at all)

the glossy finish is nice, just don't position with Windows BEHIND you.. or if you do, get some blackout blinds. I don't mind it and can focus on the monitor itself, but others may not.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Monitor

Pros: Comes with all cables provided.
Deep Vivid Color
Blacks are BLACK
White color is a bright vivid white
Color on this monitor are great
Monitor is a mirror but if you know how to focus your eyes you'll only see the screen and not the murder behind you, but if you are afraid of one adjust your eyes and you'll see it coming.
Bezel is also nice.

Cons: Slow at start up. If you shut it off.
Proprietary power adapter

Other Thoughts: I bought two of these for a triple monitor setup and am contemplating on buying a third.

5 out of 5 eggsAll-around amazing.

Pros: I got the shipment in only 2 days with super egg-saver. The monitor looks amazing and the price was unbeatable. IPS looks awesome for muh games and couldn't ask for anything else.

Cons: not really a con but you can't mount this monitor so it makes me sad I'll never have that option in the future.

5 out of 5 eggsnice screen

Pros: This is a very nice screen at a great price. It has a very thin almost none existent bezil making it great for a multi screen set up. i purchased three for my new build and im happy with them. HDMI, VGA and DVI ports. comes with one of each cable and a VGA to DVI adapter.

Cons: i bought three and one of them sits lower then the other two. kinda of irritating, but not unbearable . reading through other reviews ive noticed other people that have had other inconsistencies like this.

Other Thoughts: one screen came with a dead pixel. one dead pixel bewteen three screens isnt bad. you only see it when the screen is completely black during cut scences and what not.

4 out of 5 eggsNice monitor with quirks

Pros: Nice color, IPS, enough features especially considering the price. Very thin.

Cons: While I didn't have the same resolution or overscan problems others have had, the screen looks off-center vertically because the only external bezel on the front of the screen is on the bottom edge. This makes it look like the screen is about 1/4 inch off-centered low. At first I thought it was actually displaying incorrectly, but eventually I got a magnifying glass and determined that the image is displaying correctly, but the upper and side bezels are actually behind the glass while the lower bezel is in front of the glass. This looks really weird the first few times you use the monitor, but after a while I sort of forgot about it. I understand that they were trying to make the screen look thinner and that's why they did not use a front bezel on the top and sides, but if you don't know that its supposed to look that way then you might, like me, waste a bunch of time trying to center the image vertically when it is already working fine.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Value For Money

Pros: Excellent image quality. Slim, space saving design. Flat base design allows me to store misc objects on them. Multiple inputs (HDMI, DVI, VGA), and a cable included for each one.

Cons: Between two monitors, there was a handful of dead pixels, which I promptly forgot about. Doesn't bother me at all.

No height adjustment (expected at this price level). No mounting capabilities (also expected). High level of gloss might distract some people (I got used to it quickly).

Other Thoughts: I bought a pair of these for my home office, replacing a couple of mismatched Dell LCDs that were 6-8 years old. AMAZING UPGRADE!

I got them on sale at $120. The value for money is amazing; I got two of these for about what I would have paid for one "pro quality" monitor. I don't work from home all the time, so I didn't feel I needed "pro quality".

If I could change one thing, it would be to add height adjustment.

5 out of 5 eggscrisp clean clear cheap

Pros: One of the very cleanest looking, sharpest 1080p screens I have EVER seen... This is 10 times better than the viewsonic it replaced at 1/2 the cost.

Cons: A tad slow on ghosting refresh when fast video is played on it... nothing most people might notice though...

Other Thoughts: I bought a second one recently because of how good this is. I think the only other product I ever bought a second one of because of the quality of the first, price be d4mded, was my OCZ SSD. (and in this case the price is better, lol)

5 out of 5 eggsGreat monitor

Pros: Good size-to-resolution ratio. I like pixel density, and wouldn't go over 21.5" for a 1080p resolution. It's an attractive monitor, with glass going out all the way to the edge. When it's off it looks like it almost has no bezel at all. Buttons are nicely tucked away. Comes with an HDMI cable/input, but I plugged in DVI for a PC and VGA for an XBox. Switching between them is as easy as pressing the "source" button.

Cons: None so far, after 9 months of ownership. This seems to be a quality product.

Other Thoughts: It is a gloss screen, not matte. I didn't give a thought to that aspect when I ordered it, but haven't found glare/reflections to be a big annoyance.

2 out of 5 eggsNot the same as the one I got before.

Pros: 120$ vs the 130$ I paid for my first one.

Cons: Grey whites

Other Thoughts: I bought a 2nd one of these to go with my current one. Though both the same model, the 2nd one not only had a silver Acer logo, vs the black of my first, it is also much duller.

Having them both next to each other really makes the difference stick out. My first version, has very bright whites, this new one, looks grey next to it. Not good.

I'm not sure what happened, but, to make the same model suddenly have a silver, and not black logo, but also have totally crappp whites just doesn't cut it.

Not recommenced at all.
